I am a director in the Corporate Finance team working with small and medium sized businesses to help shareholders achieve their goals. I have experience in selling businesses – to maximise shareholder value, buying businesses – to assist shareholders in their buy and build strategy or as part of a management buy in, debt advisory – whether to facilitate a transaction, business growth, capital spend or enabling shareholders to take money off the table and also financial modelling. I work closely with both corporates and private equity.
I pride myself on delivering excellent client service, getting to grips with the challenges they face and working to find commercial solutions – I am very much a people person and so always work in a collaborative style.
I qualified as an accountant at RSM and for the last five years have been building my deal experience at HMT LLP, a boutique corporate finance house. My career has included time working in industry as both an FC and CFO, enabling me to sit on my client’s side of the table and see things from their perspective – I am not a grey numbers guy.
Qualified Chartered Accountant (ACA) with the ICAEW
I work across a wide range of sectors specialising in corporate finance (both sell side and buy side, including MBIs) and debt advisory.
I love getting out of doors, whether it’s on the bike, walking, sailing or even a drive in the country. I am very sociable and love meeting new people.
My main passion is cars, particularly fast ones, and I have wasted a small fortune on them over the years – yet always find myself shopping for the next one.
I’m also a keen reader, film fan and music lover – I have recently discovered the genre “Jazz Hop” and will be enjoying that until I have completed that level on Spotify.
